Call Before You Dig

Before you dig, think about what services might be buried in the ground, because…

What you can’t see can hurt you!

Underground there could be gas pipelines, electrical services, telephone and cable TV as well as water and sewer pipes that are connected to your home or business. In addition to these types of buried services, there could be electricity cables that serve your neighbourhood and community.

Damaging underground services can have serious consequences:

  • Personal injury. 
  • Loss of essential services, creating a safety risk for others.
  • Expensive restoration costs and potential legal actions.

Don’t take the risk. Get a free locate!

Use the Ontario One Call on-line form to request a locate for underground infrastructure before you dig at OntarioOneCall.ca or call 1-800-400-2255.
